    On Tuesday, a group of civil organizations, the Forces for Democratic Change, and the "Watan" parliamentary bloc rejected  the draft law for provincial and district council elections, which Parliament intends to legislate.
    The conferees issued a joint statement, which was received by (Baghdad Today), declaring a unified position regarding the draft law, which was read yesterday by the Iraqi Council of Representatives.
    The meeting decided "the need to form a unified front that includes all forces that believe in democratic values, and that it undertakes to present draft amendments to the provincial elections law, after involving a wide spectrum of political parties, civil organizations, federations and unions, and public opinion, to meet their aspirations." 
    The statement indicated that "passing laws related to elections and civil and political liberties should not pass without the real participation of civil forces in decision-making." 
    The conferees emphasized that "the draft amendment voted on by the House of Representatives (first reading) includes dangerous legal clauses that would undermine democracy, participation in elections, fair competition, and the integrity of the electoral process," according to the statement. 
    While the combined forces identified "a number of points related to the mechanism followed by the parties in power to include the draft amendment and vote on it in the House of Representatives yesterday, the most important of which is that the proposed law was not studied or checked by the competent parliamentary committees, according to what is stipulated in the internal system of the House of Representatives, and this indicates the dominance of political agreements on sound legal institutional contexts. 
    The statement continued, "The proposed law also contains an explicit violation of Articles 49 and 122 of the Iraqi constitution, when the council merged, in the first reading, the provincial elections law and the parliament elections law into one law, despite the different tasks and powers of the two councils from each other." 
    The meeting agreed on "the need to involve a broader group of organizations and civil movements in the discussion about the position on the law, and to unify opinions regarding the amendments to the law. It should be signed by civil organizations and parties, parliamentarians and independent political blocs, and this will be announced at a press conference to be held soon." 
    A group of civil society organizations, the Forces for Democratic Change and the Watan Parliamentary Bloc held an expanded meeting earlier in order to discuss the legal contexts through which the first reading of the draft of the third amendment to the Provincial Council Elections Law passed, which included practices that are not consistent with democratic principles .
